Lay-Flat Alternatives

Snowfall Press does not offer lay-flat binding as an option.  As an alternative, we urge customers to consider using thin paper or coil binding to achieve some of the same effect for workbooks and books. Many customers have found the thin paper option to their liking. We urge any customer that is considering this option to print a physical proof to check whether this is an acceptable solution.
